Bluestocking Sex Education

Thursday 26th May 2011

 

ATTENTION! This is an important public service announcement:

In the interests of scholarship, salubriousness and all-round satisfaction, the Bluestocking Society is reconvening in May for a cabaret-infused Symposium on Sexual Education!

In order to fully explore the ins-and-outs of this delicate subject, we have gathered the most experienced minds (and bodies) in the field to dispense a liberal dose of didactics, practical tactics and prophylactics.

 

Conducting this carnival of Carnal Knowledge are our suitably salacious Chairpersons, EASTEND CABARET, enlightening the masses with the help of their erotically erudite companion, Mr. Little Red Book.

The deliciously fruity APPLE TART (and recent runner-up as Best Variety Newcomer at the London Burlesque Week) will be providing the assembly with her very own Late Night version of the Bare Facts of Life;

Ukulele vamp and beloved Madam Treasurer TRICITY VOGUE is joined by two of her best friends, the divine ROSA CONRAD and the irresistible LANA SHELLEY. Together, wielding guitar, ukulele and a veritable (yet tasteful) wardrobe full of close-knit harmonies, THE MANGE TOUT MAMAS will share their observations on motherhood and modern life;

Our honourable Madam Secretary AUDACITY CHUTZPAH will keep us abreast of the latest burlesque birthing techniques from the Southern Hemisphere, with a comprehensive step-by-step guide;

HOORAY HENRY pops his Bluestocking cherry, using puppetry to improving effect;

The SPECIAL (NOT SO) SECRET SLOT will be amply filled by PATTY & HILLS – erstwhile daytime television hosts whose award-winning sex & cookery show will delight and disgust in equal measure;

And in a very special appearance, the incomparable DUSTY LIMITS will draw upon his immeasurable (and mostly misbegotten) wisdom to address us on any number of topics from the virile to the venereal.

BUT THERE’S MORE … audience participation levels will be taken to a new high with practical SEX-ED GAMES including Vegetable Condom Application (a.k.a Roll the Condom on the Cucumber) and what may perhaps be the very first (and last, if any video footage gets out) Bluestocking’s Air Sex Championship!

PLUS we will be treated to some choice sketches from Ms. Vogue and Mr. Limits’ acclaimed satirical cabaret ‘Lush Life’ …

ALL THIS along with the infamous Bluestocking’s Raffle (with added contraceptives), booty-shaking tunes from Madam DJ JOSEPHINE SHAKER, more tea and biscuits than you can shake a sausage at, and the greatest lubricant of them all – a well-stocked bar at Working Women’s prices!

Those brazen ladies of the Blue Stocking Society are throwing an Indoor Street Party for all commoners not marrying royalty in the morning. Who needs blue blood when you can have blue stockings?

Presiding over the merriment will be Madam Chairperson and Official Royal Stalker SARAH-LOUISE YOUNG, heading up a royally riotous line up of fabulous females.

Leading us in rumbustuous song, Old Time Music Hall style, is captivating character comedienne PIPPA EVANS

Revel in burlesque from the Queen of Hearts and her all-too-beloved Flamingo, courtesy of beautiful Mistress of Make-Believe, RED SARAH

Anti-royalist musical comedy shall be dished out by debauched communist duo EASTEND CABARET

Take a spoonful of sugar from naughty nanny Lolly Poppins, AKA burlesque charmer JEU JEU LA FOILLE

Mosh out to all-female comedy rock sensation, THE BALCONETTES (Imagine an all-singing, all-instrument-playing post-feminist Spice Girls cast in a remake of Spinal Tap)

Our very own ukulele toting troubadour and Madam Treasurer TRICITY VOGUE will be serenading you with cheeky tunes

AND!

Bluestocking Madam Secretary AUDACITY CHUTZPAH will be (so wrong it’s) Right Royally Resplendent as the groom-to-be Prince William. Wills will be joined for a funk-tastic dance rap by two of his old homie-chums from Eton, AKA DOUBLE TROUBLE

PLUS!

Keep your eyes peeled for a surprise late-night appearance from a certain Mystery Lady on her Hen Night…

AND THAT’S NOT ALL!

Expect STREET PARTY GAMES the likes of which you’ve never seen before (Guess The Weight Of The Coke, anyone?),
Royal Knees Up Music from DJ JOSEPHINE SHAKER, the highly anticipated Bluestockings Raffle, tea and cakes fit for her Majesty, a fully stocked bar fit for Prince Philip, and… yes… BUNTING! So come and join the festivities, and celebrate not getting married in the morning.

(Dis)order! (Dis)order! The Bluestockings are Back!

Flesh and Feminism collide as Abi Collins presides over a hot line up of In-Your-Face Ladies.
Come and see what happens when Showgirls Won’t Shut Up.

“Anything can happen at the emancipated ensemble’s monthly gatherings” Erotic Review

(Dis)order! (Dis)order! The Blue Stockings International Smothering Sunday Special takes place on Thursday March 31st in the hallowed surroundings of The Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club. Las Vegas veteran and non-reformed alcoholic Peggy-Sued (aka Abi Collins) will be grinding the rod of office as this month’s Madam Chairperson, presiding over a carefully selected line-up of too-hot-to-handle talent.
Blue Stocking’s Madam Treasurer and cabaret virtuosa Tricity Vogue will provide saucy, sardonic songs and ukulele, while Madam Secretary Audacity Chutzpah will be raising the Burlesque ante with the world premiere of an all new double-act with the delicious Miss Ginger Blush. Expect in-your-face naughty, nasty and niceness from Vendetta Vain, described by The Scotsman as “somewhere between a crack addict and a blow up doll”. She’s sure to push your buttons, political or otherwise.
Throw into the Moulinex Russia’s most celebrated Prima Ballerina Madam Galina, opera from German chanteuse Tamara Stein and a supremely comic burlesque from Rose Thorne, plus fun and games, the exalted Blue Stockings raffle, all the tea and cake you can shake and vac at, and a fully stocked bar at Working Women’s prices, and you have one hell of a celebration.
All for the recession-proof price of £7.00 on the door (£5.00 if booked in advance).
Can flesh and feminism co-exist? Come see for yourself. We promise to tickle your fancy, hit your funny bone and provide a night of unforgettable, thought-provoking entertainment. Absolutely EVERYBODY welcome. Well, maybe not the Pope… but we wouldn’t stop him if he really did want to come. As long as he bought a ticket for the raffle.
